Alicia Keys-Element of Freedom-Song #7

Have you ever had a continuous thought over and over and began to believe that it could be reality but are afraid of what others might say.  My life has consisted of me having these types of thoughts.  Anytime that I actually spend great deals of time thinking about something then I feel that it probably is rather important since I'm usually able to come to a conclusion on things rather fast. This situation has me torn.  Do you stay with what you have always known or do you go out on a limb for something unknown.

Whenever I have gone out on a limb into the unknown it usually has worked out well. I went to college without ever stepping foot on campus until the day I moved in and it ranks in the top of  "The Best Decisions that Olu has made". I admit sometimes people just do crazy things just to see what's going to happen, but I don't think this is one of those situations.  I've thought of my contingency plan if I truly decide to embark on this adventure in the life of Olu.

As always I use the lyrics from songs in my life and this particular song had many lyrics that described what I was feeling at the time. It was crazy how it just spoke to me. At times I have moments when songs speak to me. Jill Scott has done it many times and Drake always has a line that represents me to a tee.

Moment of honesty...
I'm gonna sit right here
And tell you all that comes to me
If you have something to say
You should say it right now

I was wondering maybe

Could I make you my baby
If we do the unthinkable would it make us look crazy
If you ask me I'm ready

Not sure where I'm going with this one but at least if I have it written it takes it out of my mind and provides me with a brief moment of clarity.
